  • Vikki Parker

    I've done some of these for the school I work at and I actually just used emulsion wall paint. I got the sort that you can have mixed to any colour you want and just got a 500ml tester pot. That gave me enough for 2 coats of paint and they still look good a year later.

    I have been thinking about finding a moccasin pattern at the local leather store. This one looks great, can't wait to try it.

  • Susan Trachtenberg

    I made these for my 2 yr old son a million years ago. They were really easy and came out great.

  • Julie Murkin Stallings

    I'm going to give this a try. I wish there was a clearer picture or step by step instructions.

  • Susan Trachtenberg

submerge pots to control herb growth

Tips for Planting Herbs
  • Betty Dettwiler

    Coloured herbs can be used to fill in bare spots in perennial beds, then brought into the house in the fal to add to recipes later.

  • Stephanie Stromgren

    Love this idea!

  • Amanda Wedvik

    This is also great for places that have crappy soil but you want to grow herbs outside... there's a lot of arsenic in my soil, so this is great!

  • Liz Miller

    That is such a clever idea
